In that video, I love how they're flying along at that speed and the sail is reefed!

Exactly, it's a nice fender. This goes back a long way in Americas cup history because the ribs always tied up to the AC cup boats and moved them out to the race course (no engines on boat the raceboats). Hence the need for a big fender.

Before ribs they used Hatteras' and such in the 70's and before that some gorgeous wooden classic powerboats.

Limeydal;

Wasn't there some kind of tall ship event this past weekend down your way (first weekend of Sept)?

Did you get out for pics?

Salthouse boats Morelli and melvin 50' power cat tender for Americas cup AC 72. Sailboat goes pretty quick; tender has to potentially right the cat. My buddy says they have come close to pitchpoling this RIB trying to keep up with the sailboat.
